    Line Breaks in Form Submission Emails

    Asked by kstanton on July 17, 2017 at 11:58 AM

    Hi there!

    Is there anyway for me to take items that are stacking on a form submission email and place them into one line rather than stacking?

    These are being stacked because they are pulling from items that are being "checked" on the from. But we're just looking to have them go horizontal, not vertical.

    Thanks in advance!

    What you can do is to list them in separate Multiple Choice fields:

    Then inject custom CSS like this to make them look as if they were one question:


    display: none;



    padding-bottom: 0px !important;

    padding-top: 0px !important;

    margin-bottom: 0px !important;

    margin-top: 0px !important;



    padding-bottom: 0px !important;

    margin-bottom: 0px !important:

    Hi there! Actually, I think this will break out the answers in the submission email into their own lines.

    What I'm ultimately looking for is to turn this...




    Stone Mountain

    West Cobb

    into this...

    Marietta, Alpharetta, Woodstock, Stone Mountain, West Cobb


    Is that doable? Thanks!

    You can use a Form Calculation widget to get the selected options, please see this example:


     1) Add the form calculation widget to your form:

    2) Get the Multiple Choice field into this new widget:

    3) Then hide it through its properties:
